As a tune up for the World Junior Championships, the Subway Super Series pits junior players from the CHL against their Russian counterparts. The Russians do a six-game tour of Canada, playing two games each against top players from the QMJHL, OHL and WHL.
Isles top prospect Ryan Strome is among the Canadian junior players named to the OHL squad, and he scored the first goal in last night’s matchup in Sarnia, Ontario. Strome also assisted on the OHL’s second goal, which is all they would need winning the game 2-1. Kids, this is why your coach tells you to follow the play.
